Healing, hope & better lives for Manitoba youth & families
MYS is honoured to be situated on Indigenous lands where we work with Indigenous and non-Indigenous families, staff and communities. Our offices and homes are located on Ininew, Anishinaabe, Dene, Oji-Cree and Dakota land and in the homeland of the Metis Nation. Our head office is located on Treaty 1 territory and our homes and sub offices are located throughout Treaty 2 and Treaty 5 territories.
We acknowledge the harms that our work, rooted in colonial systems, has caused and we are dedicated to correcting our mistakes by listening, learning from and cooperating with Indigenous communities and families in a spirit of truth, respect, collaboration and reconciliation.
Nurturing strong & resilient youth & families by:
- Reconnecting families to their culture, identity, community & sense of belonging
- Improving physical, mental & emotional wellness
- Strengthening safe, caring, collaborative & respectful relationships with family, peers & people in the community
- Equipping youth with skills for lifelong independence, including job training & school supports
